In the Stillness... There is Mercy

This poem was written and the pictures were taken by Esther Biney, Mercy Ships Photo-Journalist. Esther is from Ghana and has lived much of her life on a ship, the Anastasis and now the Africa Mercy. She also sings and writes her own songs. Her parents (Faithful and Mary) were on the Anastasis when she was a child and then they went back to Ghana and founded a YWAM base in Accra. They also run a school for children. Esther will soon be going back to Ghana and she will be very much missed here on the ship!

She has a way to put her feelings into words so well. As you read her poem you will get the feeling of what it was like to be at the screening day. It is so hard to put that feeling into words. I appreciate that Esther has given it a good try!

If you double click on the photo you will be taken to where our pictures are stored, you will be able to read the poem about our medical screening day. You can also see this file by clicking here. Please write your comments and encouragements and I will pass them on to Esther.
